Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme - HICAP
HICAP is producing knowledge on how climate change affects natural resources, ecosystem services, and the communities that depend on them.
The Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP) is working to enhance the adaptive capacity of communities in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Dr Suman Bisht, Initiative Coordinator for AdaptHimal and Senior Gender Specialist at ICIMOD, explains the participatory methods and action research through which the programme is working with local communities to assess their own capacities and develop action plans to fill gaps in skills.
